Rooney cuts short his 18-month American adventure to join Derby

Wayne Rooney’s surprise return to English football as a player-coach at Derby will shift attention to his post-playing future but the former England captain insists he still has plenty to offer on the pitch first.

Rooney will cut short his 18-month American adventure with DC United at the end of the MLS season to join Derby in January 2020.

The 33-year-old’s player-coach status will allow him to build his credentials as a future manager under the tutelage of Phillip Cocu, but Rooney believes he can help fire the Rams into the Premier League on the pitch too.
